From the library today.

Burial V184849 124/1848 HARREX MARY A AGE 21

Presbyterian Burials in the Parish of St. John in the County of Cumberland in the Year 1848
No. - Mary Harrex Age: 26 Abode: Parramatta When Died: - When Buried: 28th Oct. Ship's Name: - Quality or Profession: Coach Builder By whom the Ceremony was performed: Revd. John Tait


Just has name as Mary which is curious because the index has initial A.

Does not say "wife of George Harrex, Coach Builder" as expected from the way others have been filled out.

Second witness is George's married sister Hannah but other witness is not Hannah's spouse James. It is clearly 'Robert' on the image.

When James & Hannah married one witness was an Edward McRoberts.

James, Robert & Edward McROBERTS.

James was still alive when Hannah died in 1856.

Looking for his death and connection to Robert and Edward.
